Active Release Therapy (ART)

ART, Active Release Therapy, is very commonly used to treat conditions related to adhesions or scar tissue in overused muscles. As adhesions and scar tissue build up, muscles become shorter and weaker, the motion of muscles and joints are altered and nerve(s) can be compressed. As a result, soft tissues could suffer from decreased blood supply, pain and poor mobility. Some specific conditions that can be treated with ART include headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, other peripheral nerve entrapments, sciatica, TMJ, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis and other soft tissue inflammatory disorders of the joints.

In an ART treatment, the provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and mobility of the soft tissue. Using hand pressure, the practitioner works to remove or break up the fibrous adhesions, with the stretching motions generally in the direction of venous and lymphatic flow.

Only licensed health care providers such as chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, certified athletic trainers, medical doctors, could get training and certified in ART. Dr. (Alex) Xin Feng is certified by ART for upper extremities.
